Down for town.

The beauty of The North Face Women's Aconcagua Down Vest is that it's chic enough to wear about town, but provides excellent core warmth when you need it. Designed with a silky nylon satin twill, this is a vest that you'll reach for when you want to dress to impress on cold days. As ever, the 550-fill down provides lightweight and compressible warmth, and the quilting pattern has been refined to offer a more tailored, feminine look. The Aconcagua looks great and functions wonderfully as a stand-alone vest, and it can also be zipped into compatible shells from The North Face when the weather gets really nasty. Two zip pockets give you a place to tuck your hands or secure your phone.

  • Luxurious nylon satin twill face fabric
  • 550 fill down insulation
  • Regular fit
  • Zips into complementary garments from The North Face

Love It

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this vest online and it fits perfectly. A sweatshirt is not a problem underneath. It is snug at the waistline, which I am not use to, but I do not mind. I love the huge, deep pockets which zipper shut. It has kept me warm at 30 degrees weather in Wisconsin.

love this vest

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is a fantastic vest. I ordered a large b/c I have had problems with Northface fitting over my bust (36DD) in the past, but had hope that this would work from the reviews below. When I got the vest, it fit PERFECT. If you are small busted, I would recommend ordering a size smaller than usual if you want a close fit. The bottom flares out and produces a flattering hour glass shape. The fabric is shinny and soft. I would definitely buy it again!

Bought this for my wife too which is 5'8" 135 and 36DD, the large fit perfect! The wife said if she was smaller busted it would be too big and she would need a medium... Loves it!

Really nice, but large

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I loved this vest the moment I saw it, but it runs very large. I ordered a medium (5'7", 130lbs) and it was gaping at the arm holes and at least 2" too wide around the waist.
I'm returning it and ordering a small.

Great Vest

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

This vest is beautiful, but runs a little big. Very warm. The material has a slight sheen, which is beautiful.

Aconcagua vs. Red Blaze

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I purchased the Aconcagua vest as well as the Red Blaze vest, both size medium, both in white. I really wanted the Aconcagua to work because for the same price I thought I'd get more use out of a thicker filled vest. In the end, I kept the Red Blaze because of the fit. The Aconcagua fit like a coat, and was too big across my size C/D chest. It also gapped across my upper back. I don't feel that sizing down would have fit any better as it was fine in length and across my hips. I feel that the pattern is cut too boxy/generously for my taste. The Red Blaze offered warmth in a more fitted cut. In regard to color, I preferred the Aconcagua's white even though it had a shine, as the Red Blaze is a very bright white. It was my first experience ordering anything from BackCountry and wouldn't hesitate to order from them again, they were fantastic in every way.

Love this vest!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I really love the feel of this vest, and the fact it has pink on the inside really makes it unique. People are constantly complimenting my vest, because of it's color. I had previously wanted a black one but this color still goes with pretty much any outfit, only minor issue is that sometimes in a certain light I have been asked if my vest is purple. Due to it being a shinier fabric it does subtly change colors depending on the light you are in. Other than that I love this best and wear it all the time!

Fits true to size and perfectly cozy!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

When I first ordered this vest I went a size up to an XL. My first impression was how quickly the vest arrived. I love the free 2 day shipping from Backcountry! The vest was too large but the return process was super easy and painless. The size L vest fits perfect and I have worn it constantly. I love it! There are no interior pockets if that is a concern for you. However, everything is wonderful! I love this vest! One tip on the return for Backcountry; I do not live near a UPS drop box, so I printed the return label, affixed it to the original packaging and when the UPS guy dropped off my replacement item I asked him to take my return - VIOLA! Super easy return:) Love this site, love this vest. One Happy Camper:)

Great looking Vest

  • Fit: Runs large

My daughter asked for a Northface vest in black. Northface did not have any in stock but I stumbled on to BackCountry.com & found just what I was looking for. My daughter asked for a small because her other Northface jackets are smalls, but after reading the other reviews about sizing, I decided to order two, a small & extra small. I am very glad I did. The small vest was too big. She kept the extra small & my other daughter took the small. Everyone's happy!

Love this vest so far!

I bought a large but had to return it for a medium. The medium fit much better even thought the website suggested I purchase the large based on my height and size. Also, I prefer for my vest to be snug and not loose so it might just be my personal preference. This vest is thinner than my other one I use for camping so we'll see how it works when I get to truly test it out. But it is warm and looks great!

Bummed

  • Fit: Runs large

I purchased the Aconcagua vest awhile back from previous seasons, and this seasons vest is VERY thin compared to the previous versions of the vest. Kind of bummed-- definitely not as warm as my previous one, but I decided to return it and go with the Nuptuse 2 for more warmth-- most expensive, but worth it if you're looking for a nice vest to give you warmth.

Love it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Bought this for my wife. Seems true to size and quality was good.

Other reviews say it runs large, but I bought this in her normal size (small) and it fit perfect.

Large sizing

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

The colour and style looks incredible but the sizing runs large. I bought an xs and it fits like a sm or med.
